dc.description.abstractPeople are reading a lot less fiction than in the past. Many states have adopted new standards that require teachers to increase nonfiction reading to at least 50% in all subject areas. This indicates reading fiction has diminished in importance when trying to raise student achievement in reading. This literature review explains the benefits of having students continue to read fiction. This paper presents how reading fiction helps with student achievement, what obstacles people meet that cause them to not read fiction, and solutions that might help encourage the practice of reading fiction.en_US
